We Don't Have To Say Goodbye

Rating: 4.9
Death came earlier than expected...
we begged...
we pleaded...
we prayed
But death ignored all our requests...
for that often is death's way.

And just as often we were not ready
we could not justify...
we were confused...
we were sad...
we were angry
and it hurt to say goodbye.

But once we finished grieving
happiness revived
For although we lost a person we love
Our memories survived.

Which means as long as we remember...
that person remains near-by...
and every time we think of them...
we don't have to say goodbye.

No one can ever escape death. This is inevitable and have to be accepted. Yeah we can live with the memory of those whom death snatches away from us. Beautiful poem. Thanks for sharing and congrats.
